Don't give up hope that you will get here someday too. I had years and years of ttc and being in the deepest pit of despair that I would ever get there, but I am just too stubborn to let this universe frickin win so I perservered and so will you xxx
greenlady I hadn't heard of IMSI, but (from googling) it seems like it's just higher magnification and therefore is still very subjective? Personally we've found much better results with PICSI/HA-ICSI. We get a higher fert rate and also more day fives, where sperm is critical to day 3-5 development. When your FS says he heard this stat at a conference, was it from a single study, meta-analysis or Cochrane? Also if there are no MFI, why do ICSI? The thing I like about PICSI is that it brings back natural selection, which ICSI takes away. However if you don't use ICSI then you'll have even more natural selection, which you'd think would be superior?

Hi y'all, got back in this morning, thanks for your thoughts, didn't even know about the bombing in brussels until I got a notification from tahli's message a couple of hours ago
Just battling jet lag and catching up on the thread
Oh geez, did anyone listen to or watch Robyn Bailey talking about her son this morning? I am sitting here with tears running down my face - this is why I want a child, to feel this, to do this, to have the experience of being such a proud mother that I can't hold back the tears.
@winsor rip Gracie in your beautiful pot in the sunlight.
@Rubywoohoo absolutely devastated for you and that result. It's so unfair that we are left waiting and then that call just brings you done with a thump. I hope your appointment sheds some light on the why.
@Summer I hope you have a lovely night away over the weekend and it's a productive convo with the dp. It's your time!
The chicken incident and frozen bread debacle made me giggle. It took me back to my fairy light incident when my dp was trying to put them up and I was losing my shiz because he was doing it wrong (obviously). I only remember I was yelling at him and then he said "did you seriously just stomp your feet?" And I at that moment realised steroids make me act like a 3 year old brat.
@Summer I haven't listened to it yet. might wait a while, but she's a lovely lady. we worked at the same place (it would have been just prior to her falling pg with her eldest son) and she was good friends with one of my good friends at work
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
